Mobile Apps (for Engineers)

Must have Engineering Apps


AutoCAD 360


Platforms: iOS & Android


This app allows you to view and edit DWG files on your mobile device or tablet. This great drafting program can work well for various professions: project management, electrical engineering, architecture, and so on.

Platforms: iOS and Android

Mathpix's Snip  is the first app that allows you to take a snapshot of a math problem where the app will then solve it visually.

It reads handwriting or printed text to input complex problems where it will then output the answer directly into the blank space on the page. You can download it for free from the App Store or Google Play.

Mechanical Engineering One

Platforms: Android

Mechanical Engineering One is a handy little app for engineers. Designed by engineers, for engineers, this app aims to provide mechanical engineers with a means to solve day to day problems. 

The interface is intuitive and straightforward, and it includes many handy reference tables, calculators, and converters. 

It also has a huge unit converter library too and can handle both metric and Imperial (US) units. 


FingerCAD

Platforms: iOS

FingerCAD may seem gimmicky at first, but this application can be a useful tool for quickly designing floor plans and getting an idea of how space will be laid out. It allows you to design in 3D so you end up with quick and easy visuals while you are still on site.

It is a great little engineering app for engineers on the construction site, for architects, surveyors, designers, students, etc.

The finished file can also be converted into several other formats allowing a user to open it in different programs. The developer put lots of effort into it, including new features over time.

Wolfram Alpha

great engineering apps Wolfram Alpha

Platform: Android and iOS

Dubbed the "Wikipedia of engineering", this app offers an enormous knowledge bank of many aspects of engineering disciplines.

Just like Wikipedia, the app will query its database and return all relevant entries for your query. It is a pay to use the app, but at $5 it is definitely worth the investment over the long term. 

This app also covers other subjects too, but you are probably only really interested in its engineering info. 

Graphing Calculator X84
